Are Charlie Gasparino’s tweets at the general public getting in the way of your tracking who Carl Icahn is dining with this week, but don’t want him to know you’re silencing them? The programmers are here to help.

Today we’re beginning to introduce a new account feature called mute to people who use our iPhone and Android apps and twitter.com. Mute gives you even more control over the content you see on Twitter by letting you remove a user’s content from key parts of your Twitter experience.

In the same way you can turn on device notifications so you never miss a Tweet from your favorite users, you can now mute users you’d like to hear from less. Muting a user on Twitter means their Tweets and Retweets will no longer be visible in your home timeline, and you will no longer receive push or SMS notifications from that user. The muted user will still be able to favorite, reply to and retweet your Tweets; you just won’t see any of that activity in your timeline. The muted user will not know that you’ve muted him/her, and of course you can unmute at any time.

Another way to edit your Twitter experience: with mute [Twitter]

    I was in line at a store and just couldnt help but stare at this giant goiter on the forehead of the guy standing next to me. It was hideous, but irrestible. Same thing for the Chazbangers tweets, loaded with epic bullshit, but hard not to read.

    How does a mute feature help with the fact that this twat is still considered "news"?

    If a tree falls in a forest and hits a mute Gasparino, does anyone even notice?

    What is the meaning of muting it all, and where did Gazbag come from?
